Lady golfer bids Alberni adieu

Alberni golfer Rosemary Frankian is heading off to a new green.

Alberni Golf Course member Rosemary Frankian with golfing buddies Anna Marie Krikke

It was a packed house in the ladies lounge when we said “goodbye” to our long time golfer and friend, Rosemary Frankian.

A special presentation was made to Rosemary by Shirley Goodman. Rosemary will be very much missed by all our members. We wish her all the best in her new location and on her new golf course.

At the same time as we were saying goodbye we also welcomed baby girl Smolders, who weighed in at 7 lbs. 7 oz. and was born on Sept. 7. Her proud grandma is the ladies’ club captain, Teresa Cutting.

And the big news of the day was that Claudia Romaniuk shot a hole in one on No. 12. That’s a long, long drive, but thanks to work on that hole it was reachable and “accurate eye” Romaniuk nailed an ace.

She was presented with a hole-in-one pin by acting president, Pat Nicklin.

Other excitement for today was seeing Doreen Grant break 100. Shooting a 93 is no mean feat. She also received a pin to brag about and wear with pride.

Doreen also won low net honours. Low gross was won by Pat Nicklin, who shot an 89.

Marie Randall, the holder of the coveted Challenge Pin, had to contend with Leona Fowler and lost it to Fowler after a long hard game.

Fowler will have to arm wrestle (or play lights out next week) against Sharon Haggard.

The ball wweep for today was for K.Ps (closest to the pins) on holes No. 4 and 12. Ilona McLeod took it on No. 4 for the low handicappers and Carol Hastings walked away with a prize for the high handicappers.

On No. 12 it was Claudia Romaniuk (a hole in one is pretty hard to beat!) for the low and Sandra Simpson for the high.

Solheim Cup finals—it was Alberni Golf Club who cleaned up here by four points over the Cottonwood golfers.

Team Play—B Team of Alberni again cleaned up with 158.5 points coming out victorious over Morning Star, which had 156.5 points.

The next closest team of Pheasant Glen came in with 151 points.

Things are winding down out at our course…the final day of organized golf will be on Oct. 4. We’ll be playing for the Monthly Medal that day.

That’s also the last day that you can record your entries for the Ringer Board.

Oct. 11 is the closing luncheon and you should sign up to attend for that. A list of members planning on attending will be circulated by our captain.

Announcements:  Our own Christina Proteau has completed Stage 1 of qualifying school.  Christina will be going into Stage 2 around the end of September.

Let’s give her all the support she so richly deserves, ladies. Well done, Christina!

The Canadian Cancer Society will be holding their Daffodil luncheon on Oct. 20. Dorea Crawford has tickets for the event. Please call her at 250-723-8293 if you’d like a ticket.

Don’t forget: the Iron Lady Tournament is now scheduled for Oct. 15. Contact person is Joan Thompson at 250-724-1653 or Colleen McDonald at 250-724-2732. Check out the poster in the ladies lounge or phone one of us if you have any questions.

9-HOLE DIVISION:

No news to report.

Next week will be a mixer with the 18-hole division or a “fun day”.  We’re looking forward to that!
